So last week my kids were on Winter Break. Did you have Winter Break when you were a kid? I don't recall Winter Break, or Spring Break, or anything other than school and summer. And why is it that the kids get a break? I think grownups should get a break. Thankfully, my parents have a house up in the mountains of North Carolina and we were able to take a free trip up there and go hiking and snow tubing. The scenery is just beautiful and very reinvigorating.
